Nice! I'll have to keep an eye out for this company when it comes time to look for another job.:)

Is the short-list actually public? Where can we see it?

You can see trailers of both of these on the Blur Studio site.

Blur should do a feature length film me thinks!! Their shorts and other animations rock.

O.M.G.! In the Rough looks hilarious! Lovin the caveman chatter!

I second that Blur should do full feature-length movies!

Yeah, they definitely seem to be headed down the feature animation path. In fact I seem to remember reading somewhere that their goal is to eventually do a feature.

Ah yes, here it is - Dave Wilson from Blur said in an interview, "Our passion and primary goal presently at Blur is to create feature length CG films."

This is from "the making of Warhammer" article here on CGNetworks.
